I made FOUR different kinds of non-dairy milk — all in the comfort of my own home! Head over to the video below to see how and scroll down for a surprise recipe I made from almond pulp! 🙂
To be honest, I haven’t gotten around to making my own non-dairy milk because, if you don’t know it yet, I am lazy! I’ve wanted to try it for a while but have never gotten myself to do it (other than making oat milk, which I’ve done a couple of times). Could you believe in my entire vegan life that I haven’t even tried making my own? LOL but that all changed this week because I now have this handy-dandy device called the Almond Cow (click here and use code “cheaplazyvegan” to get $15 OFF your purchase).
Basically, this device is a plant-based milk maker where you can use any nut, seed, or grain to make homemade plant-based milk in moments at the touch of a button! Because of this device, I was able to make FOUR different kinds of milk: almond milk, oat milk, coconut almond milk, and almond pecan milk.
What’s super exciting is that there are so many more combinations which I have yet to try. This is one of the great things about making your own plant milks. You can really get creative and try out combinations that they don’t have in stores.
This device is super easy to use – even for a lazy person like me who doesn’t like to read instructions.
All I had to do was fill the filter basket up to the 1 cup line with nuts, add water until it reaches between the minimum-maximum line, screw the filter basket closed, and lock everything in place before pushing the button (watch the video above for visuals on this). It’s that easy!
If you don’t have a plant-based milk maker like the one I used in the video, you can also use a high-speed blender as an alternative – there are lots of tutorials online on how to do this. If, however, you’d like to have one of your own, simply head over to the video and check the description for a discount. *winkwink*
Oh, I forgot to mention that when you make your own non-dairy milk, there will always be pulp left behind. There are many ways of using the left-over pulp – don’t ever throw it away! You could make cookies, muffins, energy balls, etc. I decided to make some yummy chocolate chip cookies and I’m giving you the recipe here.
Here is the recipe!
Chocolate Chip Almond Pulp Cookies
- 1 cup wet almond pulp
- 1 cup shredded coconut
- 1/3 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
- 1/2 cup vegan-friendly chocolate chips
- 2-3 tbsp flour (depending on how wet the pulp is)
- 2 tbsp peanut or almond butter
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl
- Grease a baking sheet or cover with parchment paper or a reusable baking liner (you can get them off Amazon – better for the environment!)
- Spoon the dough and press into cookie shapes
- Bake for approximately 20-30 minutes or until golden
- Let cool down for about 10 minutes (this will let them come together more) and devour!????

I’ve been making my own almond milk for about 7 years and I usually throw the pulp away but have been looking for ways to use the pulp. This recipe is perfect for the pulp and the first re pie that I’ve tried that I liked. It is delicious and everyone in my household love the cookies. I can make up the cookies using my entire batch of pulp and have just enough cookies for all of us to have a treat but not over do the sweets.
